Sunday Rhythm | April 3, 2011

Plan on joining us this fourth Sunday of Lent as we continue our march towards Easter, and our voyage through The Book of Acts: Enjoying God and Engaging His Mission. We would encourage you to take some time before Sunday to pray for our gathering, and come prepared to expressively worship God together through the songs we sing, the prayers we pray, the scriptures we read, and the communion we partake in. Using the 2011 Redemption Hill Lent Guide as a reference, pray that God would be generous in meeting the material need of his people at Redemption Hill Church, and that both believers and unbelievers in Richmond would realize that their need for Jesus is infinitely greater than any material needs they have.

God Calls His People to Worship

This Sunday, we will once again be encouraging one another through our Partnering to Remember project to remember the weighty truths that center us in God’s work in our lives. Our Continuation of Worship, Responsive Reading, and Benediction this week will all be taken from Philippians 3:1-21.

God Speaks to His People Through His Word

The Bible is the means by which God graciously reveals Himself to His people. Pastor Chris will continue with our journey through The Book of Acts: Enjoying God and Engaging His Mission. Sunday’s text will be Acts 15:1-25 and Galatians 2:15-20, and the message will be entitled Contending for the Gospel: Is Grace Really Enough? We would encourage you to read the text in advance of Sunday, and prepare your hearts to be open to the truth God wants to reveal to you about himself.

God Strengthens His People At His Table

We take communion, or the Lord’s Supper, every week at Redemption Hill. The Lord’s Supper is a time in the service where we are tangibly reminded of the broken body of Christ and the sacrifice of sin he became for us on the cross.

God’s People Respond in Grateful Praise

Scripture teaches us that our lives and hearts continually give response to the Word of God (Nehemiah 8:6). We respond with either hardened hearts or with praise and brokenness. Here we have a chance to stand and respond to the Living God with songs of praise.

    The songs that we will be responding to God with will include Man of Sorrows by Philip Bliss, andIn Christ Alone by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend.
